I tried this over the weekend and found it to be a wonderful recipe that accompanied grilled chicken. I'm a cumin lover and it added a wonderful flavor to this side dish. I added some red pepper flakes and 3 cloves of minced garlic to the oil before adding the zucchini and would encourage any spice and garlic lover to add this also. Great one Yooper - it's a keeper!

I loved this recipe. I added some carrots and tomatoes, and probably could have added even more veggies. My son and I gobbled it up, but my husband wasn't a fan.

The whole family loved this. Added some chopped sun-dried tomatoes and a bit of chicken broth to the liquid. Served it with baked chicken thighs that had been marinated in garlic, lemon juice and fresh thyme.

This was an easy recipe that made a great lunch for me and my husband. I added 1/2 c. chopped onion and 1 t. minced garlic and sauteed in oil, then I added zucchini and seasonings. The cumin flavor was good and my husband squirted Tabasco all over his. I may add some sliced mushrooms next time. Yooper, thanks for a great recipe.

Need to add more spices next time. It was a bit bland.

I prepared this as a side with Surprise Coated Crisp Fish Filets. Both recipes were very easy and let me put a great meal on the table with minimal effort. I did use broth instead of water for the couscous, and feel that some salt and pepper (which I added at the table) would definitly benefit the recipe.

Only change I made was to use broth. Very good.

Made this tonight as a quick and simple side dish and enjoyed it immensely. Cumin is among my favorite spices but had not thought to try it in this fashion. My own dish was made as presented with the addition of a few sun-dried tomatoes chopped up, added for both color and flavor. That is perhaps the greatest appeal to this dish is that the variations possible. Already planning to combine the leftovers with some soy sausage crumbles for lunch tomorrow. Thanks!
